The muppet sequel will arrive in cinemas across the UK this month. If your children (or yourself) never watched the first one or if perhaps you are a dedicated muppet fan and just want to know more about the crazy characters then you should think about purchasing this book. On the other hand if you have never heard of the muppets (perhaps you have been on a remote island all your life) then you should also buy this book.
Muppet fans everywhere both young and old will love this Disney Muppet Encyclopaedia from dk books.
It’s huge and packed full of colourful character pictures and descriptions. The book is an A-Z of everything to do with the muppets. Starting with Afghan Hound and ending with Zoot each page gives you a different muppet character to learn about.

The book includes every character that has appeared in the muppets. This includes the very popular and well known ones such as the lovely Miss Piggy
